Was around the area so decided to try out this place! A classic ramen joint - nothing too fancy but not shabby at all. I got (one) of the cheapest ramens here, their ๐๐š๐ซ๐ข-๐ฎ๐ฆ๐š ๐ซ๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++), which is essentially their signature ramen (forgot the name) minus the egg ๐Ÿ˜‚ The ramen was pretty standard for a restaurant ramen - springy noodles and tender cha shu, and I liked that it wasnโ€™t tooo salty. But I think itโ€™s rather expensive: I only got 1 piece of meat and their ramen egg costs $2 more ๐Ÿ˜ข Itโ€™s a rather popular place though especially with families haha I think come here when youโ€™re balling ๐Ÿ’ธ

Buta don (~SGD12++): Simple pork bowl, which during lunch time came with miso soup as well. My friends quite liked it but I found the food pretty average? Perhaps the more expensive dons might taste better, but for this dish, I felt like my grandma can cook something similar ๐Ÿ˜› Itโ€™s palatable and not bad at all though, so itโ€™s a decent place for a quick lunch. :-)

Toroniku Uobushi Tonkotsu Ramen (~SGD13.90++): Super gao ramen broth with a lovely umami flavour ๐Ÿคฉ Definitely not for the faint hearted because itโ€™s pretty salty, but very worth itโ€™s price! The pork cheeks were heavenly as well - soft, melty with a slight charred taste. Will be back! ๐Ÿ‘

Taiwan mazesoba nagoya style (~SGD13.80++): Think this is the first time Iโ€™m trying a dry ramen like this! Sorta like a Japanese ba chor mee with a little bit of spicy kick. Pretty good, although I wish the noodles could have been a bit chewier. Price point wise itโ€™s a liiitle steep but I think itโ€™s worth a try ๐Ÿ‘ŒThey also have free flow miso soup and a free upgrade of noodles, so I think itโ€™s pretty alright :-)

Salmon Kaisen Don (~SGD10++): Havenโ€™t been here in a loooong while and Iโ€™m glad to be back! The rice stood out to me as it wasnโ€™t just plain white rice but garnished with tasty seasonings. The salmon was good too :-)

I would also recommend their truffle fries (~SGD12.90++), whereby they used legit truffle & not the spray. Remember to swing by during lunch time if you can for the SGD10 bowl deals ๐Ÿคช
